Friday 26th October, 2018:
The Renew Party today confirmed the date for its inaugural National Assembly to be held in Westminster Central Hall on Saturday 24th November.
Renew’s leaders will be presenting a new vision to the party’s members, as well as providing workshops for hundreds of candidates from across the country. Renew’s candidates are people from outside politics with real-world expertise and a strong desire for positive change in the UK.
Renew leader Annabel Mullin said: “We are thrilled to be hosting our first National Assembly. It’s a great opportunity to bring all of our candidates together for the first time. In the conversations we have held with thousands of people, we managed to cut through the Brexit divide to the domestic issues that drove the Leave vote.”
“Our focus will be to deliver not only safety and security to our communities but also to our nation. We will improve mental and physical health provision, investing in education that gives our children a sure start. We’ll encourage an innovative approach to new skills and lifelong learning that will stimulate the economy. To achieve these ambitious goals, we need smart governance by people from outside politics with real-world knowledge and experience.”
The assembly will host Renew candidates, members and guests, as well as members of the press.
In the six months since its launch, Renew has created the machine to build the conversation with all the UK’s communities. The party has:
Held thousands of conversations on the “Listen to Britain Tour”
Attracted thousands of registered supporters, many of whom have become active members to spread Renew’s vision
Selected brilliant candidates ready to run in future UK-wide elections
Merged with local political party Advance Together
Joined forces with policy experts and reformist groups to strengthen the party
Set up student societies in a number of UK universities
Played an active role in the grassroots movement pushing for a People’s Vote
Renew is the response to the electorate’s demand for a new political force in the UK and makes a huge statement of intent with its National Assembly. By presenting the first hundred of a growing pool of candidates from all walks of life, Renew will demonstrate its commitment to represent modern Britain with integrity, resilience and tenacity.
There has been much discussion about the need for an ambitious new party to rebalance the political debate in the UK. Renew agrees that now is the crucial time to establish itself permanently on the political stage and reboot British democracy for good.
Renew will now campaign for the votes of the politically homeless and propose genuine solutions to the country’s most pressing problems.
